battleground, obama and romney both in ohio tonight. the state that matters most to republicans. first, romney kicks off the day at a family farm in iowa where he will be speaking minutes from now. and the battle over big bird, the president turns his attack into a punch line and a commercial, as sesame workshop and senator john mccain cried foul over the obama campaign's new bird ad. >> elmo is -- has been seen in a white suburban he's driving for the border. oscar is hide out in his trash can. we're cracking down on them. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again but he's going to bring the hammer down on sesame street. >> one thing that president obama can't run on is his record, and so big bird, i guess, is a fun thing to talk about. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama and mitt romney are heading back to ohio today in a very different situation than the last time they campaigned in the battleground state. the new pew poll know shows governor romney ahead among likely voters. it's the latest dose of reality for the obama camp in a race that
time ago, we mentioned that president obama and mitt romney both will be in ohio today. keep in mind, ohio, the 18 electoral votes considered up to now a tossup, despite the fact that many polls have given an edge to the president. i promised you last hour john king, i deliver, of course, john king, good to see you, he's in columbus right now. and, hang on, john king, i do have to get this in, paul steinhauser, our colleague, in washington, he's updated our cnn poll of polls, and this is an average of nine national polls. and for the first time, in my recollection, this cnn poll of polls shows a lead for mitt romney. romney leading obama here, 48% to 47% in our cnn poll of polls. and, john, i'm ondering, since we're seeing this post debate swing, it appears toward romney, are the predebate polls in ohio that show that obama lead, are those pretty much null and void? >> i would wait until the top of the hour and release our new cnn poll from the state of ohio. i talked to the romney campaign, some sources in the romney campaign a short time ago, and they say they have governor romney
can do both. i think romney is doing both and romney -- watching him right now is watching him go through the different phases of romney, 509s shades of romney shall we say. >> that's exactly what they have thought. so people have talked about this a lot. the notion of they were kind of a fork in the road in the spring. do we want to run against him as a flip flopping phony or run against -- coreless, their pitch before, or do we want to cast him as a right wing radical. they seemed to and did make a decision to do right wing radical and one on throughout. i talked about david plouffe about this in may and he said we're going do both when we have to. we're going to say mitt romney there he goes trying to flip flop, coreless a phony, but not forget where he actually is, and then this is -- we're going to keep trying to pin him back to these positions he's taken. i think they have been horrible since the debate, the obama campaign. they are -- jon ward understates the degree to which they are knocked off guard and they are flailing right now and the stuff they're saying, the big bir
. >> reporter: with president obama and mitt romney both in ohio today, the focus is likely to shift back to the economy. rob and paula, back to you. >> thanks a lot, karen. >>> this thursday, it's the candidates for vice president who will meet face to face, and our own martha raddatz will moderate that debate. abc, of course, will carry it live. it all kicks off at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. they say bind could be feeling the pressure. the president did so poorly. now pressure on joe's shoulders to come out there and kind of maybe put -- you know, spark a fire that the president could not. also interesting, came out yesterday from our pollster at "the washington post" is that the composition of the polls has changed a little bit. that can explain some of the shift in the numbers. both in the gallup and pew poll, self-identified democrats, that number was higher in the predebate polls. self-identified republicans were up in the post-debate polls. so the wind has definitely been at romney's back, that's for sure, but the composition changed and changed numbers as well. and that has maybe cha
is where both the president and mitt romney are. and on one hand, the president's going to hang out in columbus because he's trying to one up the score. that's a good democratic county. but cincinnati, it's a swing county, right down here. it's one that president bush carried by 23,000 votes. the president carried it by 21,000 votes. it's going to tell you a lot about what's happening in ohio by where that goes. and then moving on into virginia, it won't come as a surprise to folks that the big swing county is in the northern virginia area, since that's where all the growth has been. and i'm sure folks are wondering, is it -- well, let me move here. technology stalls a little bit. is it a loudon, a fairfax, a prince william? well, according to our numbers, it's prince william, and the county seat of prince william, that's manassas. the joke about virginia is when you drive on i-66 in virginia, the welcome center when you've entered the state of virginia, you have to drive 30 miles to prince william county in manassas, and that's when you get the "welcome to virginia." but actually,
voters but romney leads among the all important likely voters. it's why both pull out the big guns on the trail calling in bill clinton and chris christie, while the running mates are holed up in debate prep. they face off thursday in kentucky. one month out, and we start today with "washington post" political columnist dana millback. >> hi, s.e. >> hi. let's start with with the pugh poll. it puts hit ahead likely voters and registered voters and he's made big gains among women voters and middle class voters. is it about one debate night? >> it's time for obama to panic. we did this a couple of weeks ago when the polls were the other way, and then it was time for romney to panic. it's probably not time for anybody to panic. this race is now what it was weeks ago, months ago, and that's a fairly close race it will on election day. it's decided by two, three percentage points. we've seen the bounces and swings. this one is going in romney's direction. it appears if you look at the battleground states, it still favors obama. nothing has fundamentally changed. if things keep move innin
liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at the polls i think there was a sense both in public polling and internal polling for the campaigns that ohio was slipping away from republicans in a state that they need to win. now seems there is some tightening. there was a poll out in michigan last night shows president obama only up three points there. if president obama is only up three points in michigan and that's a good poll, it's likely that ohio is back to a dead-heat which insures th
half of those likely voters surveyed think president obama is more moderate th mitt romney. i think by any objective measure that is simply not true. if you look the way president obama has governed both before the 2010 midterms and particularly after the 2010 midterms when he did nothing to moderate his positions. he did not do a bill clinton style shift toe the center where he tried to triangulate. he has been proud, rather aggressive liberal both the way he governed since the 2010 midterms and in his campaigning. and i think the romney campaign and rnc have an ad out right now calling president obama a liberal. identifying him as such for voters which makes voters jobs a little bit easier. this is opening for romney campaign to continue to make that point and tie his policies with that idealogical label. martha: steve, they will be both out in force in ohio over the course of this week. rob portman will be campaigning with mitt romney as will chris christie. talk to me about the tightening in ohio. >> ohio, it is, isn't too much to say ohio is crucial obviously. if you look at th
for government support. the presidential campaign, both candidates have promised tough action. governor romney bows to label china a currency manipulator. some analysts say it will only hurt american consumers and u.s. companies conducting business in china. tracy. lori: i guess the department is expected to have a report out tonight or tomorrow. thank you so much for that. coming up, new evidence that american men are leaving the workforce at an alarming rate. gerri willis has the numbers on that and the reasons why it is happening. that is next. first, let's take a look at some of today's winners and losers as we head to break. the dow is down. a natural resource, that is a charles payne favorite. back with more after this. ♪ before copd... i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, b worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort,
numbers. this is the new poll from pew and it indicates romney with a four-point advantage, within the sampling error but look at the september numbers, an eight poi eight-point advantage for the president. let's go to gallup. this is of registered voters conducted both before and after the debate and you can see the president with a five-point advantage. so it is interesting, two different polls, two different stories here. we're going sto see a couple moe national polls to get a sense of how much of a bounce romney got from the debate. i always say this, the battle for the white house is a battle for states and the electoral votes. go to this out of michigan, michigan a state where mitt romney was born. look at these numbers if we have them. look at the president's advantage in michigan. it was ten points back in september. that was the lead. now it's just down to three, which is within the sampling error. we have a lot of pls coming out to analyze. >> that looks like a lot more people came into it than dropped out of it or changed. there's only a wee difference between obama's s
be damaging to relations between both countries and cause internal turmoil. >> of course lots of questions for mitt romney about that foreign policy plan, the new polls, the debate performance, and today our wolf blitzer has a live interview with mitt roy in that at 6:00 p.m. eastern only on cnn. and thursday it's the vice presidential debate. live coverage starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 pacific. >>> his nickname is fearless felix. he's getting ready to jump from the edge of space. 23 miles above the globe to be exact. felix baumgartner is getting ready to plummet to the earth to break a skydiving record. he'll leap from a specially built balloon and capsule wearing a high tech spacesuit that actually weighs 100 pounds. if it goes wrong, it could go terribly wrong. and now all he has to do is wait for the weather. he was supposed to go at 10:30 eastern this morning, but it's been delayed. chad myers is with me. the conditions that he needs of course aren't available today, but tell us what kinds of conditions he needs to make this a success. >> the problem this morning was that we had s
